An animation studio opens in Deptford:
#CreeksideCommunity: Treat Studios
After graduating from Kingston University in 2008, creative directors Alex Robinson and Danny Boyle later launched Treat Studios – an animation, motion graphics and design hub now based at The Artworks Creekside in Deptford
In 2012, Alex and Danny made the decision to establish a more formal creative collective. Having been impressed by The Artworks in Elephant & Castle, they eagerly set out to join the new and exciting Creekside development, and become one of its first tenants.
Deptford’s vibrant and culturally rich community was a vital factor to moving their business to SE8. Being sandwiched between Goldsmiths University and Greenwich with a proximity to the Deptford creek, meant Alex & Danny benefit from excellent transport links with a view!
In 5 years’ time, Treat Studios hopes to grow into a larger more diversified creative studio. They are interested in other aspects of design outside of moving image including; app/game development and product design.
When asked what advice they would give a start-up business they responded “Get into a routine – set yourself weekly targets and write daily to-do lists. Delegate where you can and don’t be afraid to ask for help”
